Did You Know – Versadial has a Lightning Feedback Tool!

In VSLogger version 4.8.7, released January of this year, Versadial added a new feature that will revolutionize the way managers and agents are able to communicate with one another during training and development.

Please note: to enable this feature, administrator access is required. Once enabled, the administrator can allow specific access to additional users, such as managers or individual agents

To Enable Lightning Feedback please follow these directions:

Open CLI
->channel 1
->lightning Y

By default, Lightning Feedback is configured “N” out of the box. If you wish to enable ALL channels, type:

->lightning Y

User Permissions:

Once enabled for specific channels (or all), you may allow specific users or managers to have access to lightning feedback. This can be done through CLI, or through the GUI.

Under Adutante > General Administration > Users, select the group or specific user. The standard popup window will display. Check Lightning Feedback Enabled to provide access.  

See screenshot below:

After proper configuration and enabling specific user access, all managers and agents with permission to view those channels will see a new icon:


Selecting the “lightning icon” will instantly provide lightning feedback to the agent on the specific channel.

What Type of Instant Feedback You Ask?

Lightning feedback sends a mild shock to your Agents ear with the simple push of a button.

Versadial incorporated this feature due to recent studies involving electroshock therapy. Since our brains are tiny computers, constantly sending and receiving electrical signals, research has found that certain electrical stimuli can improve memory and thinking.

A small electrical shock to individual agents will provide the needed training and improvement required to properly handle customer service, support, or other engagement within the company.  

During Versadial’s early testing, we discovered certain agents required a bit more of an electrical hit than others. Developers and our UX designers added a simple configuration utility within the administration area. Due to the risk of adding too much voltage, we limited access to this configuration to administrators, because we feel they are the most responsible individuals to administer and configure this new feature.

Configure the Voltage: Under Setup > Lightning FeedbackU

Administrators can configure voltage, amplitude, shock time, pulse settings and gradual buildup. The gradual buildup feature allows the shock to increase by 5% each time it is used. Versadial found this specifically helpful for agents who become too complacent with the initial few shocks.

If you are not on the latest version of VSLogger 4.8.7, you will not be able to utilize this feature. Call Versadial today to upgrade. If you are out of maintenance, getting back on is easy.
